Parental Guidance : Explicit Blogging

I was reading my usual regular online newspapers, as I do most mornings, and a few ideas came to mind for a blog post. One of those was for the 90th birthday of Prince Phillip and my first thought was a small post based around the following joke.

What do you get a 90 year old prince who has everything for his birthday?

Nothing as he is a rich, privileged, and racist F%#k.

Upon writing a rough draft I noticed an odd quirk in my writing style that I am sure has appeared in some of my other previous posts. I self censor swearing in my articles. I am convinced that at the time of writing I thought it was just a humorous way to depict swearing in my posts, but I think the truth is much more lame. I am uncomfortable with swearing on my blog and I am not completely sure as to why this is the case. I have no trouble swearing in real life so I would have thought swearing at strangers on the internet would be much easier. Apparently not.

“Well, hididdlyho, all you Mutha-F%#kas’!”

Perhaps now that I am a middle aged father of two I have, at least from a superficial external facade, become the incarnation of the father from Leave It To Beaver and feel a need to give the impression of being an upstanding member of society. I can see only two options here given the current situation. The first being that I accept my reluctance to offend online strangers and hope that my censoring style still provides enough of a clue as to what words I was trying to convey. The second option is to start swearing at strangers in all contexts, be it online via my blog or just in any real life situation. I know my regular bus driver already hates me so why not start swearing at him to further our blossoming relationship. F%#k yeah, that sounds like fun!

  1. I don’t mind swearing. I find no offense in it at all, but it just has never seemed to fit my personality. I rarely swear in conversation and I rarely include it in my writing. It just feels forced.

      Firstly, thank you for the comment Mr Greatsby. My very first in my newly commenced blogging journey! I am flattered that you are actually reading my mad ramblings.

      I fall short of being the gentlemen in the smoking hot smoking jacket that I was witness to on your post. I unfortunately suffer from an incurable affliction called being an Australian which, in terms of symptons, is similar to a Tourette’s sufferer with a drinking problem. I have decided to restrict the saucy language to the pub and my morning bus trips, and keep my blog a formal dress code affair.
